Those who read my post last week might be wondering how my mini cupcake cones turned out. Wonder no more Fatal Foodies, they were a hit! The photos show how adorable they were. In addition to the mini cones, I made a few standard sized cones. One was to accommodate Skylar's candles.
Here is how I did them:
1) I made mini and regular sized cupcakes by following the directions on my cake mix.
2) I frosted the bottoms of the cupcakes to make them stick in the cones.
3) After sticking them in the cones, I frosted the tops, decorated with sprinkles and used red icing in a tube to make the cherry on top.
You may also notice that I made cake pedestals by turning coffee cups upside down and placing plates and saucers on top. I have also done this with china teacups and plates. It is a good way to improvise when you need height on a food display.
